I'm going to let you guys in on a well kept secret that the owners and employees of bike shops don't want known. Owning or working in a bike shop will not make you wealthy. Think I'm pulling your leg? Ask yourself this, have you ever seen a bike shop owner driving around in Hummer? No, you haven't. And if you did, I hope you had the common decency to pulled them out of it and stomped the living crap out of them so the rest of us would never have to witness such a disturbing sight.
Now imagine how income limiting opening a speciality bike shop would be. It appears that our only fixed gear specialty shop, Cycldelic-Fixity has closed it's doors.
The Riverside building at the corner of Post and King is empty and the phone has been disconnected. Upon checking out Cycdelic's website it states that they are closed for "Vacation & Relocation". It also lists it's current address as "The Corner of Batcave & Wayne Manor".
I sent a few emails seeking more information but as of this post have had no replies. I truly hope this not the end of Brooklyn and Cycdelic-Fixity. Brooklyn and has family are some of the finest people you will ever cross paths with. If and when they do reopen, support them. These people are an asset to whatever community they are in.
